How To Retain Your Young Birds At Home !!!
Something new that I think might retain those young birds after they have left their nests.
Most of us have no clue as how to retain those young birds back at where they were born.
Once they can fly and found a life partner they might not want to come back home.
There must be various methods that we need to discover or try as how we can force them to come back home.
Just imagine if your BH have just 100 nests and every breeding cycle those baby birds that flew off last season came back and stay put inside our BH.
If all came back your nest population will increase by 100 thus double the initial figure i.e 200. Again if the next cycle all the previous will come back your number will be 400 and 800 and 1600 and ................
You might be able to fill your BH in no time.
I wrote some article about the effect of wet floor before.
Then I mentioned about positive regeneration technique.
This time I want you to try this simple technique that might work.
What you need to do is to focus on those nests that are with babies.
Once any of these nests are with babies you have to think of a method how can I retain them back where they belongs.
Try to think a method.
Something that might work is to install two fake nests, one on the left and one on the right side of the affected nest.
The fake nests must be as closed as you can, say half an inch away.
What do you think will happen when the baby birds are able to fly?
They will normally return home to their original nest however they will be asked or chase out when their parent wanted to start a new family.
If you placed these fake nests beside their home, there is a very strong chance that they will stay at the fake nest closed to their original home and closed to their parent.
I will be carrying out some test on this interesting idea and hope it will proved my theory.
What type of fake nest is recommended?
I think any of those plastic or soft gel type with 180* shape will do.
If you can get those fake nests that were once used by a couple might be better.
The important thing is to lure those young birds to stay put in your BH and not to cross over to your neighbours.
